Abstract

The record of Pliocene time in northern and central Mississippi is generally assumed to be scant or lacking. The published geologic maps of this region show no Pliocene formations, and the only deposit in the region that has been assigned to the Pliocene is the un-mapped so-called Lafayette formation. This formation, however, in recent years has lost some of its good standing, for several students have become convinced that the material constitution the "Lafayette" in Mississippi has been altogether misinterpreted, most of it being simply more or less weathered material belonging to various underlying formations.
